tv Right This Minute ABC February 4, 2013 2:30pm-3:00pm EST
hi, everybody, i'm beth troutman. we have the best videos the web has to offer "right this minute." two skiers set out on a pristine slope. >> but listen to what happened. >> ready! >> see an avalanche bury a man alive as another man tries frantically to save him. it's the video that makes you say -- >> criminals, give them an inch -- >> and they wiggle out of a cop car. see how houdini did it. two teens are trapped when a boat explodes in flames. >> now, look at the person on the jet ski. >> how he showed some serious firefighting skills. plus, the monday buzz word for your shot at an ipad mini, show she has a super bowl ad, now this. >> it's got all the boys. >> what's got kate strutting her stuff again. >> hello, monday.
in my opinion, this could be one of the most terrifying pieces of footage ever shown on this show. couple of guys back country skiing in montana. >> absolutely gorgeous. the snow is perfect. >> this is the one word you don't want to hear -- >> avalanche! >> he yells avalanche, but watch what happened. >> oh, my goodness. that sounds and looks awful. >> tumbling down and then the camera just goes black. >> the intombment of him and the camera silence, listen. for about three and a half to
four minutes, you hear nothing. you start to hear faint screams. listen. a few minutes later, you start to hear footsteps crunching in snow, hear somebody ask, are you okay? >> are you okay? >> yeah. >> this man survived. he had a separated shoulder and abrasions and bumps and bruises. the avalanche was about 500 feet wide, one to two feet in depth, and slid about 1,000 feet. he could have more broken bones than that. >> absolutely terrifying. >> this is what it's like to be buried alive. take a look at this bizarre moment captured by news chopper 4 by knbc in los angeles. you see the man in this car? he's sacking something out of a balloon, then attaches it to some kind of canister in the passenger seat, fills it up,
then gets something out of it again. >> is he sucking on helium? >> according to reports, that's nitrous oxide. police expected this man of driving under the influence. they tried to pull him over. this man, who's identified by police as 24-year-old jorge sanchez, led officers on a slow-speed chase for ten minutes. police then had to put out stop sticks, which you see hanging out from under this car. and if you notice, police in full-on gear come up to the car with their guns drawn and watch what happens next. you see that he is struck with something, kind of collapses over into the passenger seat. according to reports, police fired in his direction with a low-impact bb gun. doesn't cause serious injuries, but did kind of get him under control. another officer goes to the other side of the car. they bust out the driver's side window. they pull sanchez out into the
street, where they cuff him, and according to reports, he was taken into custody. >> wow. >> what a weird video. >> okay, inform me, what is nitrous oxide make you feel? >> basically known as laughing ga and leaves y with a fe aorng to sanchez's father, sanchez had a problem with nitrous oxide in the past, he does this to create the feeling of euphoria. this is also not sanchez's first run-in with the law. >> not a laughing matter here for this gentleman. these two kids have fallen through the ice in a river in china. a woman and her husband saw them, ran to the scene, started screaming for help. other bystanders and police came to the scene. you can see here, they don't have a lot of fancy equipment. they use what they have. easing out on a ladder with some rope to get the kids out. >> out there with a ladder and
rope. this isn't professional gear here. >> these people are in what looks like regular kind of clothes in the water holding the kids up. now, a little boy was already pulled to safety. here you're seeing the little girl being pulled out of the water. they were taken to the hospital, but they are going to be okay. >> awesome of those people to risk their own lives for the lives of others. that's humanity. in australia, place called lake buffalo. a beautiful day, and look at this boat. witnesses say two teenagers started the boat and the boat caught fire. all they did was start it. look at the person on the jet ski come into the scene to save the day. >> yeah. that's awesome. >> well, the guy was there at the park enjoying the day with his family and said look at all this water, you got a boat on fire. he goes, well, it's obvious. he jumped on his jet ski and put it out. good thing for the teenagers,
there were three offduty nurses there to help tend their wounds. one suffered burns and had to be in the hospital for three days, but they were nonlife threatening. another teenager had minor injuries. they still don't know why the boat caught fire. we're giving away a whole bunch of ipad minis in the weeks ahead. get ready for your chance to win. >> monday's buzz word coming up soon. remember, you have to be 18 years or older to enter for your chance to win. >> stand by for monday's buzz word, and good luck, everybody. got a bit of a highlight video you don't want to find yourself on. in florida, it's a bunch of people running red lights. police recently released this video, three and a half minutes long, crashes, near misses, and a lot of people just blowing these lights on purpose, not even slowing down to stop. watch, people pull up to a red light like here in the left lane, and watch this. guy just makes a right in front of two other lanes.
i've never seen anything like that. they call this their most obvious and dangerous mix of red light runners. that guy slowed up, saw it on the motorcycle, and went right through. >> looks like they are getting tickets, though. >> you're right. drivers do get ticketed when they are caught on camera. police are hoping by releasing this video, it would deter people from doing this in the future. obviously, not safe. i have another video that might be even worse. i believe this one's in russia. lots of snow. notice this person here walking with what looks like a dog maybe, and here's a pretty big snow bank. what do you do when there's a lot of snow on the road? the snow plow comes by. that's about to happen. >> oh, poor guy! >> for lack of a better word, a tsunami of snow comes flying by and just knocks this guy over. knocks him to the ground. plow keeps going.

hot day in florida and deputy eric reyes thought it maybe too hot for the prisoner, so he parked in th shade and cracked th partough to let some of the air conditioning go through, except he left the car to talk to some fellow officers, so he left the crack and then he also left the car running so that the air conditioning was running. the keys are in, car is running. >> exactly. here's floyd, he opens the partition enough to get the top part of his body through the window just enough to reach the button to roll down his window in the back. >> you were serious when you said give them an inch. >> jumps out of the window, makes his escape, squats down, looks at the back window, that left side. you can see him scooting away. quite slowly. >> what do you do when you come back to the car and you're the police officer? >> you scratch your head, like, how did he do that?
our affiliate wfte reports the deputy was suspended two weeks without pay for not following proper procedures, including cuffing him in the front, not the back, and leaving the car unattended with the prisoner inside it. and also there was a missing headrest, which allowed him to reach far enough to pull the window down. >> where is this guy now? >> they did catch him the very next day. he is in jail and facing robbery, kidnapping, and escaping charges. last week i brought you guys this story. the security guard in downtown atlanta outside the metro mall. we see a conflict between the security guard and two women in front of a group of children. the security guard ends up tasing one of the women. the video quickly went viral. we spoke to the security guard and he told us what he's up against every day. >> i had people try to sell drugs in here, sell stolen goods. when i first got here, i kicked
them out. all you [ bleep ] drug dealers stay off this property. >> one guy really wanted to help deron long. jarome started a crowd tilt fund, hoping to raise money so that deron could get better equipment for himself to keep the people in this area safe. you can see in this story we got from wfbtv in atlanta how much equipment deron uses. in less than 4 ho24 hours, jaro raised more than $25,000. >> to tell us more about this fund, we have jarome via skype right this minute from atlanta. welcome to the show. tell me what it was about this story that moved you so much that you created this fund for deron. >> i saw how people were talking about ten started wondering, isn't someone going to do something about this? >> why do you think so many
people are ready to donate? >> he's a good guy. they need somebody to stand up and say, if the system is not working for us, we'll do something about it. >> stand up. don't walk in here again, or you're going to jail. 200 fifth and sixth graders in ottawa, canada, got to ask somebody questions about his job, that somebody, commander chris hatfield of the international space station. >> how do you warn your hands with soap and water in space? >> i love that question, germs are bad, space germs, even worse. >> look closely at the camera, you can see this. it is no-rinse body bath. it's a bag with a straw. >> notice on the package it says add water. then watch what he does. >> i'm going to squirt some water out. >> whoa! that is awesome. >> now, the water floats, and he says -- >> you put it on your hand.
and now i've got water floating around on my hand, so i wash my hands up with that. and then grab a towel. what do you mean it's okay drips of water go flying everywhere? i imagine it getting into important pieces of electronics. >> i thought so, too. >> when you're done, tuck your towel somewhere to let it air dry so the evaporated water gets back in the space station, we can use that water again. >> isn't that neat? real or fake for this week, let's do it. >> find out what happens when bench pressing goes wrong. and the quickest way to cook noodles. >> what? >> whoa! >> that's real. >> and get ready for monday's buzz word, which you'll need for
